Lega-c - "Artist NOT Rapper"
(Taken from www.DMVIXEN.com)
Lega-c (Eric A. Smith) was born December 14, 1990 in Prince Georges County, MD. Most of his childhood was spent enjoying the company of friends and family until the 5th grade where he discovered his passion for music. He wrote his first rap song “Titanium Man”, which was a fast paced juvenile rhyme about absolutely nothing. To this day he still looks back at that rhyme and laughs at the lyrics.
From that simple rhyme Lega-c (then “Lil E“) continued to expand his library of written rhyme but never recorded any of it until the 9th grade when he formed a small group with some of his peers that attended his “Music Theory” class. The setup consisted of a small laptop and the built in mic. The group had to deal with ambient noise and sub par recording quality but still managed to have fun with their music and gain straight A’s in the class.
As the years passed Lega-c drifted away from this group and started working as a solo artist and stepped his recording and lyrical content up. During this time Lega-c graduated from high school and entered Bowie State University where he attended classes and met his first college friend and soon to be business partner Terrell “TreQues” Robinson. Together they formed Good Life Entertainment and released Lega-c’s debut mixtape “The SmarTrip Chronicles“. This mixtape did very well in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area considering the circumstances. This was a new label and a new artist that basically created a buzz for himself. Later, Lega-c and TreQues would go on to rename the company “F.R.E.S.H. Entertainment“, which stood for Fly Rebels Establishing Successful Heights. This name change brought new opportunities and new acquisitions to the company which included Artists, Producers, Graphic Designers and many more who saw the potential in the company and wanted to be on board what was sure to be a enlightening ride. Presently, Lega-c is still with F.R.E.S.H Entertainment and has several projects and collaborations he plans to release in the future.
